    Hi All,

    I just got a Galaxy S5 a couple of days ago. To save battery power, I was told by my local Sprint store to stop apps by clicking "Recent Apps", then swiping them away, which I have been doing.

    I was reading here about preserving the battery. I saw a couple of posts about apps that are running.

    So, I checked Applications Manager>SD Card>Running and found what seems to be a lot of things running. I expect a few things running in the background, but this seems excessive. Here's what is running:







    It was kind of hard to screencapture these because they kept moving, but I think I got them all.

    As you can see, some of them are showing multiple instances, and some seem to be using a lot of resources. And many just sound like stuff I don't need to be constantly running.

    What can I safely stop?

    How do I stop them?

    They're no big deal. Android is good at managing background processes. Go get a battery saver app instead.. swiping them away would just drain more battery
